In this way, a city might change its shape to adjust to its citizens’ changing needs. Multiple, imaginative uses of public space could be made from what’s already in front of us. In 2020, cities such as Philadelphia and Chicago also opened play streets for children in lieu of traditional indoor summer camps.

A found park, a welcoming museum, streets that shift their shapes for children: These are designs built with time as the sculpting tool.
